Book of Life Sugar Smash Released!

The latest game I’ve been working on has been released for iOS.  Get it for FREE at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/book-of-life-sugar-smash/id916281743?mt=8.   Please rate it and leave a review too.   I’m pretty proud of the quality of the game given the short amount of time we had to make it.   The android version is coming soon.

iPhone 6 and iWatch

The days of being surprised at an Apple event are gone.  Everyone expected and iPhone 6 at 4.7 inches and at 5.5 inches.  And some sort of wearable, most probably an iWatch.   Still,  I’m definitely getting the Apple Watch.  My only concern is it looks like the battery is only good for a day.  My current Pebble smart watch goes 7-10 days between charges.  That won’t stop Apple from selling a million of these.  I bet the Apple Watch will be a big hit, particularly with the ladies.

Auto Installing Git Hooks

Git hooks are fantastic! With a pre-commit git hook, you can run unit tests, check coding standard compliance, or anything else you want BEFORE the code is committed into the repository. The problem is that the hook needs to be manually installed on each user’s local machine. Fortunately for Unity projects, we have access to an event that lets us install it automatically. The code below does the trick.

Unity Tab To Space

Yes, I realize you can easily do this on the terminal to change all the tabs in a file to spaces. But sometimes you just don’t want to leave the Unity window.   To use this just select one or more files in the Project window, then click on the menu,  Assets->TabToSpace.
